Every day, people report to workplaces in New Jersey. People did just that at a Social Security office located in Egg Harbor. At about 10:30 one morning, their work day was interrupted by a car crash that sent a car crashing into the building and through a wall, ultimately landing inside the building.
As many as 21 people were injured in the crash. One woman is in critical condition. The car that crashed into the building was a Nissan sedan. There were two children and a female passenger in the car along with the driver.
One woman ended up pinned underneath the car, and a man who was in the building at the time of the accident pulled the victim to safety before paramedics arrived. The woman is at an area hospital. The extent of the injuries to other people are unknown. According to reports, charges against the driver may be pending. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
A sudden car crash is a possibility every time a person gets behind the wheel of a car in New Jersey. The outcomes of such accidents can be scary and life-changing. A person who has been impacted by the results of a car crash, either to oneself or a loved one, should consult with a personal injury attorney. A knowledgeable lawyer can review the facts of the accident and advise the client as to what legal options are available. A civil suit against a party deemed responsible for the accident can provide compensation for medical costs, lost wages and other verifiable losses.
